Millions of Americans were enthralled Sunday as the United States dominated Japan in the World Cup final.

Not only was it the fifth most watched non-NFL sports event of the year, the United States victory was the second-most viewed soccer match ever in the country.

The brilliant play of Carli Lloyd and her teammates was so captivating that it transcended the human race. Even dogs wanted in on the action.

A man who goes by "The Auger" on Twitter uploaded this video of his granddaughter doing her best to distract the family dog, Deuce, during the soccer final. And the girl had no luck.

Deuce, along with more than 25 million humans, watched as the United States thrashed Japan in a rematch of the 2011 final. The Americans scored four goals in the first 15 minutes and cruised to a 5-2 victory. The victory marks the first time the Americans have taken the World Cup trophy since 1999.
